So, I'm celebrating my 3 years and 1 month (give or take a few days) anniversary. laugh.gif

I stopped playing guitar in August because I had gone through a rough personal patch and just didn't care about playing any more. I picked up the guitar again for a bit last week and was frustrated with how much skill I felt I'd lost.

I've been playing again for a week, so it's coming back pretty quickly. I hope to submit at least one REC video this weekend to help get myself back on track.

So, who missed me? wink.gif

I wondered if you were gone, but it was difficult to be sure because I'm kinda gone too. I'm still playing though.

Without prying into your rough personal patch --I'm not that interested in another man's patch-- I'm curious why not play guitar even more during these times? Seems like a great way to write some good music and maybe get some of your baggage put behind you, y'know?

Anyway, glad you're back and feeling a little better.

Guitar allowed me to think too much. I spent too much time playing MW2 on the XBox.

On, the plus side, I got a lot better at that game.

laugh.gif I bet!

MW2 is a great game. I stopped playing a before summer because I was sinking too many hours in there. Now I play other games, but not so focused.

Hey mate, glad you came back! smile.gif Yeah, getting back in shape is never that hard with guitar, one or two weeks of focused practice, and it all comes back, and better I might add, based on my experience.

Great that you decided to rock again, can't wait to see some RECs! biggrin.gif
